Knocking Me Off The Perch

Not too long ago, I went up to Windsor, Ontario with my lawyer, Mr. Van Dress. Like my netbook, I never like to leave town without legal representation. Since there are really only three things to do in Windsor – drink, gamble, and buy Cuban cigars – we picked up some stogies, drank until we were confident we’d win, and headed over to the casino.
Before long, I had blown through far too much money on blackjack, and Mr. Van Dress had “invested” just as much on craps. Checking our pockets, I had $2 in chips remaining and he had $8, so we walked towards the roulette tables to place one last bet. Which table? and Black or Red? were the burning questions, and the answer seemed obvious: Table #3 and Red. After all, the table’s counter showed that black had just come up four times previously, so that meant red would have to come up next. Right?
